I first saw Van Halen in concert in Detroit. I mention that because I first found out about him on Facebook. A dear friend of mine, Mike Skill of The Romantics (from Detroit), had a post about Eddie's passing.
Eddie Van Halen had more talent in his pinkie than most people have in their whole families. He was one of the great ones. Is there a guitar player out there who sounds like him?
The last time I saw Van Halen in concert, here in Orlando, David Lee Roth was back in the band and Eddie's son, Wolfgang, was on the bass. Along with his brother, Alex, on drums it was David Lee with the Van Halens.
Suffice to say they tore the place up.
I'm getting weary of saying Rest In Peace. But.
Rest In Peace Eddie Van Halen.
